FabFitFun Unboxing Winter 2018 + Review

Hello there beautiful people!

I am in such a great mood today because we only have 2 more weeks of this semester, then… CHRISTMAS! It is my absolute favorite time of year & I am feeling extremely festive. Christmas actually came early this year because my FabFitFun winter 2018 box came this week! It has officially been 1 year since I have started these boxes & boy has it been a fun year receiving all these awesome products. If you are looking for the perfect gift to get someone, choose FabFitFun! It is a box that is full of different & new products. I For those of you tuning in for the first time, I’ll do a quick run-down of how everything works! I pay a seasonal subscription of $49.99 (not monthly) & if you pay to have a box, you will receive over $300 worth of products in your box. All products you receive are from existing brands & are full sized! I don’t promote any products or services that I don’t like or I don’t use, so the fact that I take the time to share with you all these products should show you just how cool these boxes are. Now, let’s dive into all of my new goodies (I’m totally running out of space to fit everything)!


Moroccan Gold Series Treatment Mask

This stuff not only smells amazing but does its job! I am not normally one to use hair masks because I am always fearful that it will make my hair feel gross or not work properly. This hair mask works wonders though! You apply it to your already washed hair, leave it in for 5 minutes then wash it out. It is a mask used to seal split ends & strengthen your hair all together. 10/10 would totally recommend!


Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo (Add on)

First off, totally loving the packaging for this product! It is so clean & chic which basically mimics how the product works. This was one of my add ons to the box & I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I used to never really have a need to use dry shampoo in the past because I wasn’t always on the go (like I am now) but now I have something that will make it easy for me to keep fresh for the day! It makes my hair feel brand new & I doesn’t leave a weird residue in my hair, which is always a plus.


Sherrie Matthews Acupuncture Jade Roller (Add on) 

So I have been seeing jade rollers all over the internet & I have been dying to use one to see what all the hype is about. For those of you who don’t know, jade rollers are used as an anti-aging beauty tool that is supposed to help promote facial relaxation. I have used it a few times & if I’m being honest, the product is cool but I’m not sure if it is worth all the hype I had been seeing. Maybe I haven’t been doing it long enough in order to see any real results, but I just don’t seem to be getting it. HOWEVER, I will say that it does make me feel more relaxed before bed & it has been sort of fun to use as a form of self-care!


WAY OF WILL Elevate Essential Oil 

I am a sucker for good essential oils & I absolutely love my oil diffuser during the winter time! Eucalyptus & orange are two of my all time favorite scents (along with lavender) so, needless to say I was super hype when I saw these in my box. Another great way to use these oils is simply applying them to your body. Orange is said to help sooth headaches or cramps & eucalyptus can be applied to sore muscles! I am super excited to use these oils & I 100% recommend them to everyone (because oils are life).


Thrive Causemetics Brilliant Eye Brightener 

This eye brightener has become a staple piece in my makeup routine! I have always hated my dark circles & I always felt like no matter what I did to my eyes, there was no way of making my eyes look brighter. This product gives you that little bit of extra shimmer to your everyday makeup look. Absolutely in love with this product!


AHAVA Hydration Cream Mask 

I have found new love for the brand AHAVA! I received a winter hand repair in my first FabFitFun box last winter & have been using it ever since. This product I feel the same way about. This mask is a very simple and easy way to make your skin appear a little brighter and more hydrated (which is always needed in the winter). It is perfect for all skin types & you can leave the mask on for a few minutes or all night! The product is infused with mineral spring water, shea butter & vitamin E which helps your skin feel smooth and soft. Totally hooked on this brand!


BLAQ HydroGel Eye Mask 

I know I say this a lot for these products, but I have found new love for these BLAQ eye masks! These are used to reduced puffy eyes & dark circles which is amazing considering what a problem I have with those. You apply them right under your eye & leave on for around 10 minutes and watch magic happen. After applying them to my eyes, they gave a cold, tingly feeling under my eyes which I thought was a little strange, but after a while I started to forget that they were there. I took them off after 10 minutes had passed and already I could see a difference in how much brighter my eyes looked! The only downside is that there are only 5 packs of eye masks so I will have to use them sparingly, but other than that I would 100% use again.


Mark & Graham Color-block Throw 

This throw is one of the softest blankets I have ever received! I absolutely love the coziness it adds to my room. Not going to lie, the color is not my absolute favorite color in the world, but I still think that it adds a cozy feeling to my room regardless.


Lele Sadoughi Silver Necklace (Add on) 

I have been dying to find a new simple necklace that I could pair with anything & I think I may have found it! This necklace is absolutely adorable and very simple. It came in silver which I wear most of the time so I am happy with the style & color.



Spongelle Body Contouring Buffer 

I have received this product before in a previous box & I was pleasantly surprised at how much I really enjoyed the product! It had multiple uses for cleansing, exfoliating, massaging & toning your skin. I cannot wait to use this the next time I am in the shower!


Doucce Punk Volumizer Mascara 

I am absolutely obsessed with the mascara that I already use but like I have said before, I am always willing to try new products. This mascara definitely volumized my lashes by making them thicker which gives off the look of fuller lashes. I have only used it once so far, but I cannot wait to use it again!


 If you have any questions about the FabFitFun boxes feel free to contact me about it. I will post my link below for you to check out the website & get started on your first box! If you use my link you will bet $10 off your first box (which is an awesome deal). I have an IGTV video up and running on my Instagram page where I will be showing you the products. Be sure to keep a look out for another post this Thursday for my latest obsessions series! I hope you all have an amazing rest of your week & I cannot wait to talk you you all again soon.

It’s Okay Not to Have a Plan + Why

Hey there everyone,

Since I have started my last year in college something has been on my mind (as I’m sure it has been for the rest of you in the same position) & that has been what does the future have in store for me? I can’t express to you how often this has been on my mind for the past few weeks so I wanted to share a post with all of you about how I have been feeling about this topic. It’s so hard not to look at people on social media or in real life & how it looks like they have their whole lives put together. I have experienced this in so many different instances & it’s hard not letting that put doubts in your head about your own life & questioning where it all went wrong. But recently, I have realized that not everyone has it all figured out which is OKAY!


When I was in high school I always knew that my next step was college & I would further my education. When you are in high school you never had to think critically about your future plans past college & now that I have entered my final year of school, I realize how fast everything is actually moving. It has been making it harder to figure out what my next step should be. Even though it is a scary thought not knowing where I am headed or what I will do after school & I have come to the conclusion that it’s okay not to have it all together. The more I have thought everything, I have come to accept that I can’t always control where my life is headed. Don’t get me wrong I set goals for my everyday life, but I absolutely SUCK at planning my future. Thinking about moving away from home or graduating from college or moving in with your boyfriend can be a scary thing to think about, but you have to. I am only 21 years old & I am supposed to make all of these decisions & moves that will change my whole life. But, I have decided not to let these things scare me anymore. Trying not to worry about every little detail has allowed me the ability to relax & reflect on everything going on in my life. I normally am a high strung person who tends to stress very easily, but now I am working on accepting things for they way they are & not stress about what the future has in store for me. I have learned to be patient & trust that there is a plan for me. So the next time you are feeling stressed out about your future, just remember that it is okay not to follow your exact plan. Take time, adventure, make mistakes & love your life because it is the only one you have!

I hope this post has helped you feel more at ease about whatever is going on in your life. For me, I know writing this post out (finally) has helped me dive in deeper to how I feel about this topic & how to cope with all these changes going on. No matter how old you may be, just remember to enjoy your life (cheesy, I know) & don’t stay hung up on your “plan” for the rest of your life. You have plenty of time to figure everything out! I hope you all have an amazing rest of your week & stay full of positivity. I will talk to you all again soon!
